Grand Theft Photo

In the February 2008 issue of Popular Photography, there is an article of this title written by Neal Matthews and tells of the massive theft of images posted on websites. Photographer, Robert Burch was mentioned of having his images stolen and showing up on 535 websites. It says, even if you go through the long process of actually having your images formally copywrite protected by the government, it is next to impossible to recover any damages. He even had one of his images show up on the 10,000 franc note of Burundi’s paper currency.
